Katerin has been with Heartlight Ministries for almost a year and it gives us great pride and joy to see how God uses her to minister to the girls in her care. She has learned so much and we love every minute we get to catch up with her, whether it’s a couple of days or just a phone call.
Emily and her boyfriend, Zach, are celebrating
a year together and have just transitioned into a long-distance relationship as
Zach took a job in Arlington. We have enjoyed getting to know Zach this past
year. Emily moved to a new apartment this past summer and has roommates again.
They have been so kind to take care of Daisy on the weekends Emily goes to
Marian is in her 3rd year of caring
for an elderly client. She has enjoyed some travel this year—Las Vegas for her
birthday, Alabama for a wedding, Thanksgiving in Oklahoma, and she is headed to
Mexico for NYE! We love having Marian close and enjoy our time together when
she is not working or off having fun.
You can see from our family photo below that we are excited to announce Wesley’s
engagement to Sarah! The wedding planning is in full swing as we look
ahead to April 27th. We could not be more thrilled to welcome Sarah
into our family! Wesley is finishing college this month and walking the stage
in May! He is studying hard for the CPA exams and he and Sarah plan to move to
Dallas where he will start a job with Mazars next summer.
Omar is in his Senior year at Tomball High
School. He is in class half days and then works at Houston Oaks the other half

last Spring! He is planning to study Agriculture at SFA next Fall—go
Saimon and Savannah are both Juniors and both
are going to high school out of state. Saimon’s school has 8-man football and
his team was undefeated and took the State Championship! Savannah is just
getting settled at her new school and we look forward to seeing her soon!
Going to high school out of state was not what we planned
for or wanted. But for different reasons, and with heavy hearts, we made the
decision in effort to help meet our kids’ crucial needs during this time.
Together is where we want to be. Even though we cannot be together every night
right now, we are trusting the Lord to hold us all close, even closer to Him. And we try to make the most of the times we
do get to see each other.
We hope you have a beautiful Christmas with loved ones and
pray that in whatever path you are on, you may know the Lord more deeply and
feel His amazing love and goodness every single day!
love, The Evermons
